MAC LIPSTICKS

Two posts in two days, I am getting back in form.

Mac cosmetics. Most likely the most popular make up line on Youtube, yet I have never tried it up until a few weeks ago. Living in Vienna definitely has its perks when it comes to make up, you get access to a whole bunch of more exclusive brands.



Usually I would always go by the Mac stand without even looking twice at it, up until the day where I wanted a veeery dark red color, preferably matte. So I googled and googled and decided that Mac's Diva might be the one. What I really love about Mac counters is that they disinfect all their make up and allow you to try them on right then and there. So when I tried it on, I was immediately in love. The color was exactly what I was looking for and the matte finish was great, without drying my lips. The website describes the color as "intense reddish-burgundy".


So I picked up Diva, and a few days later went back for a bright matte red, and I ended up getting Ruby Woo, which is a retro matte (more dry than regular mattes). Ruby Woo is my very first bright red lipstick and I think that red lipsticks can really make a girl feel classy. The website describes it as a "very matte vivid blue-red". The fact that it has blue undertones instantly makes your teeth look whiter.


On the same day I also picked up Peach Blossom, a Cremesheen ("a frosted cool nude" according to the website), which is the smoothest and creamiest lipstick I have ever had on my lips. It's a lovely color and I wear it almost every day.


I have come to understand the hype about Mac as a make up line, although I still cannot understand why a person would need to own basically 90% of their entire line like some people do. Make up is truly an obsession. :)

  1. Lovely colours! :) I love that you also do swatches on your lips, it's much easier to see how the lipstick looks when you wear it. :)

  2. Omg I love them! I have bought my first MACs just a few months ago. I'm from Serbia, and I ordered from my friend 2 lipstick when she went to Vienna. You are lucky that you live there. I especially love the first one, I might buy it at some point :)
